[filmscanners] Re: Kodachrome 25 versus?

Imacon 5600 dpi scans from K25 make grainless gicle prints at 18" x 24",
from somewhat less than full frame, hence 20X. Necessary for museum shows,
where the prints look truly impressive. (Using Canon on a solid tripod with
the macro 50mm well stopped down, the subject carefully illuminated.)

I'm anxious to retain this capability in future work.

You aren't alone in being unhappy about the loss of the slow films: Zeiss
complains that they can't brag about as much lens resolution any more. If
you are already using a tripod, you could try 645 or 6x7. I'd think that the
Fuji 100F films in 645 would look at least as good as K25 in 35mm at 18x24.

I see that Fuji offer Astia in 32 ASA. Is this close to K25 in

Not in Japan*. Does Agfa still make RSX (ISO 50)?

I see what may be going on: Astia 100F is ISO 32 under tungsten using a
wratten 80A filter.
